Insight Goes To Yosemite-1 - Ken Rudin, known to NPR listeners from his many years talking all things politics with Neal Conan on "Talk of the Nation," joins Insight host Beth Ruyak for our signature segment that puts California politics in the context of the national scene. Rudin joins us from Washington D.C. in an effort to put it all in perspective.
Insight Goes To Yosemite-2 - It's been 150 years since President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, paving the way for Yosemite National Park. It's one of the best-known and most-visited National Parks in the country. An anniversary celebration and groundbreaking for a $36 million restoration project in Yosemite's largest sequoia forest called the Mariposa Grove is happening at the park today. Today, on that anniversary, we visit Yosemite to learn more about the park's history and what it makes it so special to visitors and the people who work there and call it home.
Insight Goes To Yosemite-3 - Emmy Award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker, Dayton Duncan, has a beautiful new book about the history of Yosemite National Park and the creation of the national park system. "Seed of the Future: Yosemite and the Evolution of the National Park Idea" features a compelling narrative, accompanied by archival images and full-color landscape photographs, that tells the story of how the world learned of Yosemite, flocked to it, nearly destroyed it and finally saved it. The book was published just ahead of Yosemite's 150th anniversary in 2014. Duncan discusses his book and his continued focus on the America's national parks.
Insight Goes To Yosemite-4 - In honor of Yosemite's 150th anniversary, Beth and James made the approximately four-hour trip to Yosemite National Park to explore the area and talk with visitors. We'll hear their Day in the Park.
